I just installed my-humanity icon theme on my Ubuntu 12.10 but i have an issue :

I extracted the archive to /usr/share/icons or/and to ~/.icons but when i apply the icon theme from gnome twek tool home folders icons dont update but stay to Ubuntu mono dark default icons. Only Launcher/tray icons change

I attach screenshots in order to understand whats my issue : My folder icons on home : http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/2935/screenshotfrom201212021.png How they should be : enter image description here

Any ideas on how can i fix it ? Note : On nautilus as root (gksudo nautilus) they appear how they should be .. Only on user do not appear !

Could it be that you started gnome-tweak-tool using sudo? because then you would have applied the changes only to the root account. –  fotomonster Dec 2 '12 at 8:44
    
I think i found whats the problem but dont know how to fix it : In nautilus preferences i have changed the icon size to 66% from 100% and my-humanity theme has these icons only when icons are 100% . When i change icons size to 100% everything is ok ! Is there any solution to apply the icons when i decrease icon size to 66% ? –  ALdaperan Dec 2 '12 at 8:48

The theme use different images for the 32, 24, 22, 16 pixels icons.

You can solve this copying the 48px icons in the 32, 24, 22 and 16 folders in the theme directory, this works fine for me.
